Regionalism, Artisanal Territory, Appropriate Technology

(p.171) 5 Projects of Intermediacy
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the 1970s and 1980s, which is when certain gaps in national hegemony led to new political trials. The discussion zeroes in on three shifts, namely the agitation for an inshore artisanal zone, the embrace of regionalism, and the use of motorized technology. These shifts are shown to have created a transitional space of politics. It then addresses the argument that the intermediacy projects represent the actual limitations and possibilities of the nation-state in the way that both cosmopolitanism and localism do not.

Keywords:   national hegemony, political trials, inshore artisanal zone, regionalism, motorized technology, intermediacy projects, cosmopolitanism, localism
